Product Description

Product Description

CD Columbia, 5050192000, 2001, 14 Track

Amazon.co.uk

It's his continuous search for new ways to blend el ritmo, with elements of pop, rock and funk that has made Ricky Martin one of the biggest selling pop acts of our time and hence worthy of a Best Of collection. Nothing to do with his penchant for vigorous hip thrusting mid-video, or the fact that his name crops up on "World's Best Looking" lists with predictable regularity. But love him or loath him, you can't argue with over 30 million album sales worldwide. The by now brain-numbingly familiar ("La Vida Loca", "Maria", "She Bangs"), are interspersed with tracks that leave one with a strange sense of déjà vu--so disappointingly formulaic is the Martin production machine. Staccato riffs from the brass, football chants for choruses and enough samba magic to bring the 4th of July to any soporific Christmas afternoon with the grandparents. And all rounded off with a bonus collaboration with Madonna on "Be Careful" ("Live to Tell" combined with latino guitar is all very pretty). --Ruby Tuesday

I unintentionally bought this CD, just out of curiosity about Ricky Martin's work. The CD is a compilation of his more internationally popular work. It undoubtedly has some good less heard tracks such as "guidado mi corazon" with Madonna and "Nobody wants to be lonely" with Christina Aguilera as well as the almost classic "Maria" and "Cup of Life". Overall,the CD is a good reflection of Martin's recent work, which shows the breadth of his skills: from passionate to extreme energy levels. It even makes those who were not fan (such as me) more enthusiastic for his work. Overall, a good buy.

After eagerly ripping open the wrapping of the CD on the day I bought it, I listened and my foot couldn't stop tapping! Then my whole body joined in - I got so carried away with "She Bangs", whirling around the round, that I pulled a muscle in my back. I spent the whole weekend flat on my back. Thanks a LOT, Ricky!

P.S. Your CD bangs.

Well, it's a VERY long story. I 'accidently' clicked on this album and then 'accidently' read ALL the reviews, before 'unintentionally' preceeding through the whole checkout procedure until I 'mistakenly' pressed purchase! Stupid me! You can imagine how I felt when I waited for the CD to arrive, hoping no one would get to the post before me and thus revealing my apparent bad taste in music! Luckily that moment never came, although I thought twice about opening the package due to my 'unintentional' purchase. When I did, well it was like I was born again. You see, I'm a DAD and now thanks to this mesmeric album I feel COOLER than ever. My kids think I'm daft as I gyrate round the living room, my (now ex) wife thought I was a total fool for swaying my hips to the rhythm of the Rickster, but heh, she may have taken half my wealth but at least I got to keep this wonderful album. The only problem is that I thrust my body to it so much that I have now pulled all the muscles in my groin area. Well, he is gorgeous though isn't he! ;-)

It's a long story, but I got this CD bought for me by accident. I've never MINDED Ricky Martin at all, just never really been a 'fan' till now. I always thought that his music was for young girls and dads who want to appear cool, but this is a very good compilation, a real guilty pleasure. The standouts are easily the cheeky and witty "Shake Your Bon-Bon", and the dramatic "Private Emotion", but the whole thing stinks of a record company afterthought, so that sadly loses it a star instantly. Never mind, it's still a handy and value intro to Ricky's fun world of sunny days and beautiful girls.

I had been looking for this CD everywhere for so long and could find it any where but when I did find it here on Amazon i was very happy, all I could think was "happy days" & "I need it now" it's one of those CD full of music that you just have to move your body and yes this may sound "cliche" but it's the kind of music to make you wanna Shake Your Bon-Bon.

It's OK, just what you'd expect, (bearing in mind I am not a fan). A "Best of..." and so "does exactly what it says on the tin". All the big UK hits are here plus others, it did get my toes tapping. Best kept in the car for a bit of variety on long journeys.

I was a little disappointed with this cd as I only like very few, which was a shame because Ricky Martin is a great artist.
